About The Property
207 Wilkes Street, Alexandria, VA 22314
Historic 2BR/2BA Townhouse in the Heart of Old Town
Located a block from the Old Town waterfront, this three level town home at 207 Wilkes Street is full of charm, character and updates. The home was likely built by Alleghany Smoot who was allotted the plot from the division of the estate of George H. Smoot in 1872. It retains many of its original features from the 1800’s, such as exposed brick walls and original hardwood floors. However, it has been updated to today’s tastes with plenty of modern luxuries. An addition allows for an open concept main level, featuring a spacious living room, dining room and chef’s kitchen. Top of the line Bosch and Subzero stainless steel appliances perfectly complement the white subway tile and granite counters. We especially love the views from this level. Floor-to-ceiling windows opening to twin Juliet balconies frame a quiet streetscape in the front, while the rear of the home overlooks quaint courtyards. Two bedrooms with sizable closets, two full baths, plus a lower level family room and flexible bonus room provide additional space. Enjoy your morning coffee or an evening glass of wine outside on your cozy, private patio. Or stroll across the street to river views at Lee St Park, or down the block to restaurants, shopping, walking paths, bike paths and the riverfront.
